When my cousing was here alst week, we started talking about our families and where we have come from. I guess that's not unusual considering we haven't seen each other for over 20 years and she hasn't seen many family members in that time at all.
We are related through our dad's and she didn't know much about her mum's side (her mum died when she was quite young), so I started by looking into her mum's family. I was quite surprised at how quickly I started finding stuff. I have been so inspored that I have started looking into Cal's side of the family. There is no point doing mine, as my mum is well into that. There's no point doubling up. But I think that it's important that my kids know where they came from.
So I started tonight, and got a few details. I have contacted Cal's parents just to confirm some information before I go any further, just in case I am on the wrong track.
I'm very excited. I love this type of stuff.
Wish me luck!!
